one of the cooler taprooms i’ve visited. a good variety of West Sixth beers, all at a reasonable price. building includes a bike shop, a sustainable food business, and best of all an attached fish/sandwich shop that delivers to the taproom. they have a running club that looks cool and very friendly staff. will definitely visit again next time in lexington.

After drinking in Cincinnati and heading to Louisville for business...with the plan to return back to Cincinnati to fly home...I figured I’d drink the 2nd night in Louisville. Thank goodness someone I met at Madtree the first night talked me out of that and into returning to Cincinnati via Lexington (instead of drinking in Louisville). I hadn’t considered this since last summer I passed thru Lexington and hit the very fine Country Boy brewery. They told me it was worth going out of my way for West Sixth...and they were right! This is a really great brewery that I actually like a little better than the more highly rated Country Boy (taking nothing away from them). Large drinking area with tables as well as a sizable taproom and "L" shaped bar. There were "18" beers the Thursday night I visited about 10 days ago...which included a cask (apparently they do a cask most Thursday nights). I had 3 flights and tried 12 of them plus a few generously offered tasters. I can’t say enough about this place...really great beers...hoppy beers, big beers, barrel aged beers, sours, and dark beers...too many to write about given most were very good if not great. Coming here and trying many of their beers was a lot of fun...wish I had more time. One of the coolest things about West Sixth is the adjacent fish restaurant accessible directly from inside the brewery. You order and pay...then they deliver to your table or bar spot...and let me tell you something...this is "really" good seafood...worth coming for independent of the beer...which is what many do (note that the get very crowded...I waited at least 50 mins for my food...but it was worth it and I didn’t even notice the first 30 mins or so as the beer was so good!). The staff here is very friendly and very helpful...even given how busy the place was the night I visited. West Sixth is a must stop in Lexington and clearly worth going out of your way for!

Visited on Derby Day, 2016, right when the race began, so it was quite full. Big bar, a bunch of tables and more space outside. Quite large and spacious with plenty of taps of all varieties, including a few experimental brews. Service was good, friendly and knowledgeable. Welcoming atmosphere and plenty of cool and reasonably-priced shirts. My fave in the city.

Nice brewpub with L-shaped bar and medium sized room with big long tables. Service was good and personable, place was not that busy on a Monday afternoon. Good selection of West Sixth beers. I did not try the food, but sounds good. Good value. Overall I enjoyed my trip and hope to go back.

First stop after dinner. This is a pretty nice and large space with a good vibe to it. I didnt count the taps when I was there, but it was quite a bit more than 10 - maybe 16 plus? Staff was super friendly and happy to talk beer with the customers. Brewing equipment visible behind glass with a grease pencil inventory of what was brewing where - a nice touch. Swag station with glasses and clothes. Several flight options, and individual tasters for 2-3$ A lot of the beer was solid, but nothing really stood out, and a couple were clear misses. If the beer were just a bit better, this place would be really good. OOHH, and they have Crowlers, which is still hella cool to this California boy.

Fairly large place, with the brewery on one end and a large tasting room on the other. L-shaped bar with no less than 17 of their own beers on tap. They do firkin Thursdays which involves tapping a firkin on Wednesday, interestingly enough. Flights of four are available, or you can do their five flagship beers. They’re connected to a fish store that does all kinds of fried seafood - order there and they’ll bring it to you in the brewery. Staff was friendly enough. Growlers and crowlers available, as well as sixers to go. Nice place.

Definitely my top choice among the three breweries I visited within a 1 mile circle of Lexington! Nicest vibe, friendliest and most knowledgeable staff, best beers, best price structure. Collocated with someone kind of food joint next door which is most convenient, too. If I could only go to one in Lexington, this is it. Brewery #685.

West Sixth is just outside of downtown Lexington in a nice, big, inviting corner building. They don’t have any house food besides some pretzels, beer cheese, and popcorn, but they do have a side door that opens to the seafood joint next door. Didn’t try it, but the pretzels and locally made beer cheese (in a plastic resealable container) were good; just wish they could heat the pretzels. Anyway, there were 16 taps, one of which was a ginger ale. All house taps. The standards were there, with some seasonals and some weekend specials. Saturday is a great day to go to get the full gamut of their offerings at any given time. There were 3-4 people behind the bar at any time, and they couldn’t have been any friendlier, especially after getting the surly "service" at Country Boy. It wasn’t overly crowded, but still was full at the bar and had plenty of tables occupied. There’s a big side room with doors that open garage-style, so I could see this being a big Saturday afternoon hangout spot when it’s nice outside. Overall, had a great experience here and am looking forward to many return visits.

The building itself is nice. Very clean and open. The beer is overwhelmingly mediocre. No food but there is a seafood place right next door that will bring your food to you in west sixth so that was pretty cool. Our bartender knew absolutely nothing about beer or how to pour beer for that matter and it took almost 20 minutes for me to get the flight I ordered when they weren’t even that busy. I hope the service gets better because that makes or breaks an experience at a place for me.
